LUCKY JOHNSON LISTENING HOUR PRESENTS
Saturday, June 25, 2016, $10 at door only
Ragtime Annie combines the talents of four of the DC area's finest bluegrass musicians, with the added twist of being one of the few all-female groups on the scene today. While sometimes hosting guest members, the band is comprised of core members Avril Smith, Gina Clowes, Ashley Stewart and Malia Furtado who are each individually award winning and together create a sound that remains true to bluegrass tradition at times, and at other times boldly and creatively steps out into a little country, a little swing, and a little something of their own that can't really be dubbed anything by any genre. Malia and Ashley are frequently seen performing with regional favorite, Circa Blue. Avril plays with several bands including the U Liners, The Great Unknowns, and is a founding member of Della Mae. Gina recently played in regionally popular band Bud's Collective, and currently plays for Nashville based band, Chris Jones and the Night Drivers.
